We are now two weeks into BlackBerry's 25 Days of Gifts and today we are seeing two different games depending on what BlackBerry 10 device you have. We see this happen when apps or games aren't available on certain devices. As usual, you can check back on the original post for the full listing. But remember, previous free downloads will no longer be free.

Day 14 free downloads

Upon checking the forums, the 25 Days of Gifts banner does not seem to be showing up. I'm not sure if it's regional error as I can see the banner on all my devices here in the U.K. However, if you are not seeing the banner simply use the links above for your device and this will take you to the game which should show up as free. Refreshing BlackBerry World may fix the issue. You can hit up the forums for more discussion.

Uno now on my Z30 and downloading NFS on my Z10, thanks BlackBerry!

Ouch, would have liked both, UNO and NFS on either my Q10 and/or Z10...

Why NFS on both 10s?
And UNO on the cute Q5 and the phablet Z30?

I guess board game works well on phablet, and Q5 performance related due to low GHz dual core.

NFS still crashing when you win. Annoying bug

I can't see the banner this morning but last nite it was there. For the first three days of the offer I could see the banner but couldn't open it: I was getting an error massage like many others. Anyway we're well used to BBRY messing something up whenever they attempt to do anything.

I'm seeing the banner but it is coming up with the Day 15 giveaway which is obviously going to be the star tracker app. But when I try to download it, it says promotion not available yet...

Electronic Arts, you make me so mad!!! My Z30 deserves Need for Speed. Why? Why is this and many other games not available for the Z30?

sk8er_tor

From what I recall, BlackBerry automatically made all Z10 apps compatible on the Z30. Devs had to specifically remove their app from the Z30 catalogue. I only assume EA wants to test the app on the Z30 before making it available.

Dear BlackBerry I need Say It app, can you gift that for Christmas? Thanks :)

Bug reported many times, just crashes when you win a race. You are not alone

On my Q10, Need for Speed comes up as "not available for your device". But Uno doesn't show as free either. So I guess I lose either way. :-(

Posted via my Q10. :-D

Prem WatsApp

Had that on my Z10, just refresh BB World, confirm to download, let download finish, enter game.

When starting game, it dumped me back into BB World saying "not available" for my device, closed & restarted game and BB World, game booted up successfully. Just try again, vary your approach, restart app and refresh BB World. Or the other way round, it should load. Don't give up...

Posted via CB10

Ragbert

Thanks Premwhatsapp. NFS is downloading now, after closing/re-opening BBW a couple of times. (Wish we'd been given a choice here, Uno is definitely more my style!)

Posted via my Q10. :-D

stevobbm

Done. Q10 work well, even with the smaller screen.
Thanks BlackBerry and EA.

robbiexu

why Z30 is Uno?

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

I guess phablet works well for board game. :-) Sorry for you. Would have liked UNO on my Q10.

Would have been better use case to show off awesome GPU power of Z30...

Posted via CB10

DJ Reyes

Because the developer hasn't made Need for Speed available for the Z30, unfortunately

No NFS for the Z30? Kidding?

The banner for my bbw is gone too!

Just pull down menu (swipe down for "Settings", go "General", then click "Refresh BB World") in BBW.

Close BBW, restart BBW. Otherwise try SIM card pull with phone reboot. Reboot twice and re-check w/ and w/out SIM inserted.

Worked for me on Q10 and Z10. Good luck. My geo region is down unda...

Thank you BlackBerry.

Love the keyboard controls for braking/nitro/speedbreaker on my Q10...people of the metropolis---have no fear, these syndicate punks will be served.

Just see Sonic Racing in BlackBerry World...might have to add to my Sonic collection.

I hope Sega will bundle Genesis and Dreamcast games for BB10.

All is well here in Canada. NFS on my Z10 and Uno on my Z30

Why not available this free gift on my android? Hahaha

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

Because resistance is futile, and you will be assimilated....

(at least when 10.2.1 official hits, hehe, sorry, I know your pain, 10.1 users in the US)

Posted via CB10

Prem WatsApp

Re-assimilation of defected Android users will be initiated soon and is part of the war strategy.

As soon as technology to beam APKs directly on to devices is released, victory is inevitable....

(... or so we hope the story will go... ;-) )

Is there a mistake in the reporting? BW says Need for Speed is not available for this device when trying to install it on my Z10.

Posted via CB10

DJ Reyes

Try refreshing BlackBerry World

I found need for speed boring

Restarted my device. Now BBW says it is undergoing maintenance. Anyone getting this message?

NFS is one of my favorite games on my PB. Looking forward to trying it on my Z10

I am downloading NFS on my Z10 but I have ordered in a Z30.
1. If I transfer my device info to the Z30 will the game work on the Z30?
2. Will BlackBerry World keep a record that my BBID owns the game and alow me to download it again fro free if it subsequently becomes available for the Z30?

DJ Reyes

1. If you backup and restore or carry out a device transfer using BlackBerry Link, you will see NFS on your Z30. 
2. All downloads will be link to your BBID, so you can redownload any paid apps or games, provided they are available for the device. i.e. if you just searched for NFS on your Z30, you won't see it as it's not available for the Z30 but a restore from your Z10 will put it on  your Z30 even if you can see it in BlackBerry World. Make sense?

Where is Asphalt 7: Heat!!? It's gone, it looks like it's totally deleted

Too many games, only 2 useful apps for me so far.

Didn't download any of the other ones to save BB a few bucks, I assume they are paying for this instead of the devs taking a loss, and definitely can't see the movie studios giving any kind of discount

Damned! I am running out of space on my Z10 and this is only halfway thru the 25 days of freebie

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't NFS a free download for those of us that bought the Z10?

Z10 with OS 10.2.0.1767

I tried downloading NFS but all I get is a screen that reads as follows:

“There was a problem loading this page, please check your Radio/ Wi-Fi connection.”

Anybody else getting this message when attempting to download NFS on a Q10? I've tried downloading other free apps and haven't had any such screen appear. It only seems to happen when I try to download NFS.

Loving the app for day 15!! Definitely one of my fav. It is so useful. It is so user friendly too. It has night vision option, automatically sense my location and direction.

Can't wait til when the weather is better so that I can try it out one night :))

Nfs unavailable for z10 according to BlackBerry world

Darn! IMO they Should have given the Need for Speed to the Z30 and Z10's and the UNO to the Q10 and 5.

Just my opinion
